Small but very determined, Sophie is everyone's favourite farmer-to-be! From the beloved author of Babe comes the last of six stories about Dick King-Smith's most adored (human!) character, the inimitable Sophie, re-imagined twenty years later by the witty, perceptive paintbrush of the award-winning Hannah Shaw. Sophie would love to have a pony, but she doesn't think she'll ever be that lucky. She does get a lucky break, though, when Great Aunt Al invites her to Scotland! This charming, funny story beautifully captures the dynamics of family life and has been given a fresh, contemporary look by a talented artist.
